PREFACE. 



The early and valuable character of the text of this 
volume may be seen at a glance. At the time of the 
next extant Visitation, the religious houses which form 
so unusual a feature in this one were no longer in being. 
The document, moreover, is the first of a series, and the 
very keystone of Durham and Yorkshire genealogies. 

Two codices are claimed as the originals. Both are 
certainly of the reign of Henry VIII. The one, in the 
College of Arms, is poorly written and feebly illustrated, 
but it may be the original draft of the author. The 
other, in the Harleian Collections, is in a good set hand, 
with the arms large and sufficiently intelligible, but still 
of coarse execution. It contains internal evidence of 
being a transcript, and probably was intended as a fair 
copy for reference. 

For reasons which genealogists will readily supply, 
collation was not sought, and the Museum MS. had to be 
the Editor's text.* The College authorities, however? 

* By some oversight, the entries of Donyngton, Pemerton, and Vavasor, have been 
inserted at p. 55 instead of p. 62, between Gower and Drax. " Transfixed by" is 
perhaps not quite the proper term in p. 19. The cut is correct. 



Vlll. PREFACE. 

readily allowed him the opportunity of becoming ac- 
quainted with the general character of their duplicate, 
and he ventures to say that no material differences 
exist between the two MSS. 

At the end of the office book, the Editor observed a 
roll of North-country arms, more resembling in drawing 
and caligraphy those of the Museum text, in which such 
an appendix does not occur. He hesitates to express an 
opinion whether this was Tonge's work, or whether it is 
identical with No. I. of the appendix to this volume, 
which has occurred to him since his visit to the College ; 
but he conceives that it well supplies the want of the 
office roll. It will be noticed that many of the persons 
mentioned are those of Tonge's Visitation ; while, on the 
other hand, unaccountable variations occur. Also, that 
Constable, the transcriber in 1559, calls it a copy from 
an old Visitation, which would be a curious expression for 
Harvey's Visitation of 1552. Constable drew on vellum, 
and his handiwork is of no mean order. 

No. II. of the appendix is, in the main, a late Eliza- 
bethan document, differing in Durham, and probably also 
in the other counties, from any known Visitation. It 
mentions George Frevill, of Hardwick, which was granted 
to him in 1590, and Thomas Radclyffe, who died in 1593. 
At first sight it would appear that we could fix the 
precise year, as we have Henry Lord Scrope and Robert 
Booth, who both died in 1592, and Robert Tailbois, who 
succeeded his father at Thornton Hall in March of the 
same year, while others of the Durham entries would 
accord with that date. But some parts at least were 
derived from earlier sources. For instance, Avery Uvedale 



PREFACE. ix. 

occurs under the wapentake of Gilling West. He died 
in 1583, and his son John sold his estate of Marrick, in 
that wapentake, in 1588. Some additions of the 17th 
century are not devoid of interest, and the body of the 
roll is decidedly valuable. The curious punning coats 
of Killmghall and Elstob — evidently their more ancient 
bearings— may be cited as examples of the variations 
from Visitation evidence. The volume in which this 
armory is comprised was purchased by its possessor, the 
EeVo James Eaine, the Society's able secretary, in New- 
castle. The cover also contains an Elizabethan roll of 
peers' arms, and an imperfect codex of the armorial roll 
of Newcastle officers, generally known as the Carr MS. 
Of the subject-matter of this last, the following account 
is given by Bourne : — u A manuscript I have often 
had occasion to mention gives us the following account 
of the Castle-yard. The way through the yard begins 
at the Castle-yate, and, when I was young, there was no 
houses in it but the house of one Thomas Southern, and 
the house of one Green : these houses were near the gate 
before you come into the Castle-yard ; and there was in 
the garth a house, wherein the gaoler of the castle dwelt 
and a house wherein William Robinson dwelt, who was 
Deputy Herrald under Norroy King at Arms. This man 
tvrote in a Book the Arms of all the Mayors of this town, 
from Laurentius Acton until his time. And when I was 
Chamberlaine of the town, which was about the time of 
Sir Nicholas Cole's being Mayor, in the year 1640, it was 
then in the Town's chamber. When Trollop built the 
Town-court [1659-60] he borrowed it; but would never 
restore it." The copy of this roll — afterwards in the pos- 



X. PREFACE. 

session of the Cans of West Auckland— is generally sup- 
posed to have been that which was retained by Trollop. 
After some strange vicissitudes and rejections by the New- 
castle antiquaries, it is now by purchase in the Editor's 
possession. Mr. Raine's MS. has probably long been 
imperfect, and has further suffered for the illustration of 
Sir C. Sharp's MSS. It is in the same handwriting as 
that of the Carr MS.— a queer, upright, printlike style — 
but it has its own peculiarities as to matter. The notes 
of chronicles — miserably brief in the Carr MS. — are almost 
absent in the Raine one. The latter, also, has several 
blanks, as if the collector had failed in his search after 
some of the coats. The differences of juniority often 
vary, as if he had difficulty in ascertaining the relation- 
ships of the municipal worthies, and had altered his views 
in the second MS., in which also the blanks of the first 
are filled up. The drawing, however, of the second MS. 
has never been completed. Among other little wants, it 
lacks the addition of black penwork : thus, an ermine 
coat of the Raine codex may appear as an argent one in 
the Carr MS., and it would not be the intention that 
indications of differences given by colour upon colour 
should permanently remain so. The two MSS. have 
been minutely collated for No. IV. of the appendix. Many 
curious local coats are only found here, and others, better 
known, have unusual features. The Brandling cross is 
crosslet and not patonce, and the Liddell coat has a fret 
and is not fretty. 

It remains to notice No. III. of the appendix. It 
consists of a small collection of copies of the grants of 
northern arms, composing a volume, in the possession of 



PREFACE. XI. 

William Gray, Esq., of York. From the way in which 
the scribe copies the exhibits made by heralds to whom 
the grants were produced on their Visitations, it would 
seem that the originals were before him ; the more, as he 
also gives trick drawings of the seals. He probably had 
no very good knowledge of French or Latin ; but, with all 
his imperfections, his work is not of a character usual at 
the outside of the College gateway, and it will be deemed 
worthy of the few pages which it occupies. 

The Editor is a mere archaeologist and topographer. 
He does not affect to have a critical and professional 
knowledge of modern heraldry, and he has little sym- 
pathy with the manner in which it is used indiscriminately. 
His friends will not complain if his descriptions are not 
always in accordance with conventional rules, or that his 
notes are unequal. He trusts that the first, if inelegant 
in their reflection of rude drawings, are not wanting in 
precision, and that the last, if savouring of favoritism, 
are not unuseful.

by her had yssue, Syr Brian Stapilton; and Thomas Stapnlton 
of Quemreby. 

And the said Syr Brian the Second maryed the donghter 
and oon of the heyres of John Lord Lovell, and syster to 
Frances Lord Lovell : l and by her had yssue, Syr Brian Sta- 
pilton, knyght ; and George Stapilton, esquier f and Jane 
Lady Pierpout. 

And the said Syr Brian Stapilton the iu 1e maried Elisa- 
beth, donghter of Henry Lord Scroupe : and by her had 
yssue Rycharde Stapilton, esquyer, 3 whiche Rychard maryed 
Thomasyne, donghter of Robert Amadas, esquier. 

And the said Syr Bryan Stapilton the iij de maried to his 

and co-heirs of the younger Sir John Loudham, knt. [IV. 3], and lies buried in the 
middle of the chancel at Bingham, under a fair alabaster tomb, whereon lay tho 
effigies of himself and his wife, but is now almost defaced. He died about 37 Henry 
VI., and left three daughters and heirs (Esc. 37 Henry VI.), Elizabeth, the wife of 
John Cheney, esq. ; Isabel, the wife of Sir Brian Stapleton, knt. ; and Margaret, the 
wife of Richard Bingham, the younger, esquire; which last pair, I think, left no issue. 
— On Sir Thomas Kempston's tomb was, Argent, a chevron, with a mullet or cinquefoil 
in the dexter point sable, Rempston, impaling Chequg, argent and gules, a bend sable, 
Bekering. which was also in the windows, but. in some made lozengg." (Thoroton's 
Notts.) In the east window of Screveton, Thoroton describes the cinquefoil as a 
" mullet pierce/," and so in a window of Loudham. On the early cross-legged effigy 
of Sir John de Loudham there, the bend is crustily, and so in the window, where 
Rempston impales a coat of two quarters only, Loudham above Beckering. The 
exigencies of glass -staining and common sense did not allow of needless repetitions. 

1 The grand quarter II. contains the coats given in fo. 136 of the MS. to John 
Lord Lovel, who married the heiress of Beaumout. They are those of Bassett 
(adopted for Lovel), Deincourt (in the latter page given as afess dancette between ten 
billets, which is right), Holland, and Grey of Rotherfield quartering Fitz-Alan of 
Bedale. Lovel ancient occupies the surcoat. 

The grand quarter III. embraces the arms brought to Lovel by Jane, sister and 
heir of William Beaumont. The second and third quarterings were brought by her 
mother, the heiress of William Phelyp, Lord Baidolf. The fourth quartering com- 
prehends the coats brought by " Alis, donghter and heyr'to Alexander Earle Boughan, 
in Scotland, and to the third parte of the Earledome of Wynchester," in marriage 
with '' Henry Lord Beamont, which came into Ingland with Quene Esabell out of 
Fraunce, and eousyn to the said quene in the iij' le degree." The cinquefoil in fo. 
136 has an ermine spot on each petal. This device, though placed on a shield by late 
heralds, and now used as the arms of the borough of Leicester, is really only a badge. 
It occurs on the seal of Robert Earl of Leicester, 1191-1204. The stibject has 
recently been elaborated by Mr. Planche before the Archoeological Association at 
Leicester. 

2 Had Rempston in tail male. On the tomb there of his son Henry, who died in 
1586, the arms of Stapleton are differenced by a crescent.

Arms : Argent, a lion rampant sable. Crest : On a wreath argent and sable, a Sara'

The reader need not be told that the star of Stapleton of Carleton arose brilliantly 
in the persons of Thomas Stapleton, the profound genealogist, who died in 1849, and 
his brother, Lord Beaumont.

The forsaid Syr John, the elder brother, died withoute yssue. 

Syr Nicholas, the yonger brother, maried the doughter of 
Syr John Busshe, knyght, of Hangham : and by her had yssue 
Syr John Byron, the whiche maried the doughter of Petur 
Shelton, esquier, called Isabell. 4 

1 His canopied tomb, at Wollaton, gives most of the 'quarterings of the text, not 
in grand quarters, but in regular order. He died in 152S. Although he had issue 
by two wives only, he really rejoiced in four; and on his tomb, two are represented 
on each side of him, not side by side, but head to feet of each other, their effigies 
being only half the size of that of their gallant spouse. 

2 From his monument, at Wollaton, it appears that he was killed in conflict with 
the Norfolk rebels in 1548. He had issue Sir Francis Willoughby, who built the 
"noble pile at Wollarton." His eldest daughter and co-heiress married Sir Percival 
Willoughby, ancestor of the Lords Middleton, -who hold Wollaton. The crest was 
an owl, perhaps a punning allusion. This silver owl, ducatty gorged and chained or, 
appears on the red banners held by the supporters of Lord Middleton. 

3 The ancestors of the poet are comprised in this pedigree. The quartering is that 
of Col wick, the heiress of which family married Sir Richard Byron, temp. Ric. II. 
The words round the arms on the seal of Sir John Byron, in 21 Edw. I., Crede 
Beronti, seem to be a mere sigillary form, closely allied to the common Crede Mihi, 
but its occurrence is perpetuated by the family as a motto, Crede Biron. 

* In the ordinary pedigrees she is called Isabella, daughter of . . Lemington. Sho 
had no issue. The family descend from a second wife. This Sir John was the 
grantee of the inheritance of the Priory of Newstead. There is an extraordinary 
will of him at York, relating especially to his religious opinions.

Maud, and their children, and of their and his own parents. This was in the time 
of Henry I. betwcenllOO and 1108, and it is gravely asserted that one and the

in order from that in the text, with the addition of Elen. Grove fell to Barbara, 
wife of George Nevil. 

Ermine, a chief azure, has been quartered for Arches, but' quaere if the Hercy coat 
itself is not a differenced coat of that family ?

died in 1455, gives these arms impaled with Hercy above her head, and Hercy 
alone above her husband's. The quartered coat of Hercy and Leke occurred in the

borne" is there stated to appear in 18 Edw. III. on the seal of Sir Thomas de 
Gasteneys, of the elder line, which is represented by Gresely. Sir Edmund 
Wasteneys, of the younger line, acquired Hcadon by settlement 3 Edw. III. subject 
to the life interest of Lawrence de Chauworth and Agnes his wife, who seems to 
have been an heiress of the Hedons. See Thoroton. 

3 So the MS., a proof that, though contemporaneous, it is a copy of a more rough 
original. In making it, the scribe sometimes blundered. In other instances we 
find him correcting himself, but here, on Thoroton's authority, and the plain lack in 
the text, we should place a generation thus : — " George Wassenes, son of Robert, 
maried Elisabeth, doughter of Willyam Blithe, and had yssue." 

1 Thomas Thurland left the manor of Gamelston in 13 Edw. IV., his cousin and 
heir Thomas being 2 1 years old. Thoroton mentions, in a window there, a prayer for

and Gules a saltier ermine, Nevill of Rollaston." In another window " Thurland' s 
chief is indented, and upon it a file of three labells instead of the three tarn." The 
money was made by Thomas Ihurland, a great merchant of the staple, Mayor of 
Nottingham in 1449 and 1458, and his mark is perhaps continued in the three taus 
or T*s. It was wasted by an unthrift.

3 " "Wyrkesop is called in some old writings Radeford. "Wilhelmus Lovetoft was the 
first founder of it, in the time of Anselm, Bishop of Canterbury, and Gerard, Bishop 
of York, in Henry's days. His blood and inheritance came to a daughter that 
married one Furnivall. After, Furr.ivalle's inheritance came to a daughter, the 
which was married to one Nevile, and he had a daughter by her, the which married 
to Talbot, the first Earl of Salop." (Leland.) The church of Radford is dedica ed 
to St. Cuthbert. The parish church was the west end of the priory church. The 
priory was granted to the founder. 

The arms given above are those of Nevil and Furnival, the former being also 
differenced with one of the Furnival martlets. Willement's Roll colours the martlet 
gules for Thomas Nevil, who married the heiress of Furnival. 

According to the new Monasticon, the common seal has not occurred. " Tanner 
has engraved two ccats of arms for this priory from Leland's Collectanea, i. 49. 
Besides these two coats, he says for "Wirkesop, I have met with another, viz. 
Argent, a bend gules betiveen six martlets of the same ; over all, a crozier or. In the

1 According to Hunter (South Yorkshire, ii. 149), in Dr. Johnston's time, over 
the door entering into the court before the house of Friekley, was a shield with three 
martlets on a bend, which tradition said were the arms of the family from whom 
Frii-khy came to the Annes. On an old stable door was the same quartering, an 
eagle displayed, and over the door, was '"God save Martin Anne and Fiances his 
wife, 1572," Christopher, his brother, having died s.p. The three martlets on a bend 
also appeared on a stone in Frickley church, incribed to " Alyss de Anne, quce obiit 
20 Feb. 1403." In my eopj of Glover's Visit , the martlets are on a fess, and the 
horns of the stags' heads are gold. 

It is plain that the date of 1400 will not suit the wife of Sir William de Anne, 
constable of Tickhill, temp. Edw. II., whose last appearance is in 4 Edw. III., and 
who is said by Hunter to have married Alice, d. and cohr. of Rob. Harengel, mesne 
lord of Frickley. Glover's Visitation gives three daughters to Hob. Haryngell : 
Catherine or Elizabeth (wife of John Fitz- William of Woodhall) ; Alice; and Joan, 
wife of Sir Henry Gramary, father to Agnes, wife of Alexander Anne, son of Sir 
William. 

Hunter calls Thomas, who heads Tonge's Visit., Alexander, and gives Baskerville 
as his wife's surname. He is not supported by Glover. 

For the crest, (perhaps allusive to Anne) sec the Visit, of Dugdale, who gives the 
quartering only as the arms. 

2 He died s. p., and the line continued from Martin.

Everingham, gave the manor of Birkyn to her younger son John. The baronial

1 The whole, entire, or undifferenced coat. I transfer the above entry to this 
more appropriate place, from fo. 45. b. It no doubt means that the Pulleyns of 
Scotton were the oldest line. The quartering is given with others by Glover, and 
he draws the birds with legs. In Tonge they are more like martlets. 1 presume 
that the heiress of Burdctt is indicated. 

1 do not know any junction of the two lines of Scotton and Crakehall. For the 
latter, see Burke's Commoners. Its old crest was a horse's head erased and har- 
nessed. It appears on an old Elizabethan panel in the possession of Mr. Robert 
Thompson, Darlington, above the usual differenced coat, a bend cotised and charged 
•with three escallops, and a chief charged with three martlets. Below are the letters 

I. PL., the two last characters being a monogram. 

2 From Mr. Hunter's accownt of the monument of Thomas "Wentworth, who died 
in 1587, having married Margaret, only d. and h. of Win. Gaseoigne of Gawthorp, 
we learn that the above quartcrings are those of the following families: — I. Gaseoigne. 

II. Nevil (undifferenced on the monument). III. Mowbray, (by the d. and h. of 
Alexander Mowbray in the generation next before that commencing Tonge's pedi-

1 This is no doubt the heiress indicated by the differenced coat of Nevil in the 
Visitation. On the Wentworth monument it does not occur, and there we have 
Nevil or (Fitz-Meldred), Nevil ancient, Bulruer, Middleham, &c, undifferenced. So 
also in the Gascoigne heraldry at IT are wood. 

It is remarkable that Tonge's Yisitation gives no colour to an impression that the 
Gascoignes were heirs general of Nevil of Raby, though, by the laws of ancient 
heraldry, they could not use the entire arms because they had not the land — remark- 
able, because the dispute, on the territorial question only, as we might otherwise 
infer, was unquestionably raging only seven years before. The evidences on the 
subject are given in the following table : —

intend to bear my Lord of Westmerlande's armys, pretending title to the Earldom of West-

suffer him so to do ; nor no more will none other do that were able to resist the same ; nor, as 
I believe, he ought not to bear them, considering that my Lord of Westmerland and his father, 
grantfather, and many others, hath enjoyed the land without interruption ; and no man may 
bear the armys of his antecessors without difference, unless he be possessed of the inheritance. 
I beseech your grace to speak with the heralds in this matter, and to write unto Sir William 
Gascoigne' for the reformation therein ; that I have no business to do therein, when it shall be 
time to look upon our enemies. He hath or now attempted to have borne the armys, but the 
Earl of Ifestmertande's father not being content with the same, he hath laid down the same."

is generally said to have come through Uffleet, but at least the seignory is enumer- 
ated amongst the estates of the Fitzalans of Bedale, the coheiress of whom married 
Stapleton, and it is plain that Sir Bryan, who died in 1394, had considerable

1 The arms are those of Mowbray differenced by the crutch. According to the 
monastic account of the founders, the foundation of Newburgh was in 1145. 
" Tunc ipse Rogerus, cruce signatus, ivit in terram Sanctam, et in suo itinere in- 
venit draconem cum leone pugnantem in valle quae dicitur Saranell, percussitque 
draconem usque ad mortem, et sccutus est cum leo in Angliam usque ad castel- 
lum de Hode." " Rex Richardus Secundus dedit comitatuni Notingham domino 
Thonise Mowbray. Vicesimo anno regni sui— dedit eidem Thomas ad portandum 
in sigillo et vexillo suo arma Sancti Edwardi. Idcirco arma bipartita portavit, vide- 
licet Sancti Edwardi et Domini Marescalli Anglioe, cum duabus pennis scamonia 
erectis, et super cristam leonem et duo parva scuta cum leonibus ex utraque 
parte proedictorum armorum." The account ends with the Thomas of the text, 
"cuilonga vita et vita bona. Vicit leo de tribu Judae, leo fortissimus bestiarum, 
ad nullius pavebit occursus. Dominus custodiat vas et semen vestrum usque in 
sempiternum." 

2 The arms are those of Roos, differenced by the crosier. The history of the 
founder of Rievaulx Abbey and his descendants may bo found in the baronages.

Richard Lord Latymer, son and heyre of Henry, maryed 
the doughter of Humfrey Stafford, esquier : and by her he had 
vssue, John, son and heyre ; Willyam, second son ; and Thomas. 

1 Quarters IV., V., IX., and X. are probably an impalement of Vere qunrtcring 
Howard and Badlesmere, by Jobn Nevill, the father, rather than quarterings of John, 
his son, but the text could only be given as the MS. stands. 

In the 1st quartering, the difference is a thick circle enclosing the crossing of the 
quartering lines. The colour is not stated, and as the rude drawing of the MS. often 
shows what ought to be hidden by charges, this entry does not assist in the question 
whether the difference of this house was an ogress, or a black annulet, which is dis- 
cussed in Mr. Nichols' privately printed essay on the Armorial Windows in Wood- 
house Chapel. I think that an ogress is meant, as in the Danby pedigree, fo. 67, the 
impaled coat of Nevil Lord Latymer's saltire has a similar circle on the saltire 
with the blazon u sa" written within it. In Ilarl. MS., 2076, the difference of 
" The Lorde Latymer" is clearly a black annulet ; the colours are stated to be argent 
and yules. The supporter is a golden gryphon, and above the shield, without any 
wreath, is the same animal passant.

1 Edwin, king of Northumbria, must be meant by this appellation, Hilda 
has been considered as his great-granddaughter, but his nepos Hereric, her father, 
must have been Edwin's nephew, not his grandson. See Young's Whitby on this 
point, vol. i., p. 131. The fable about the ammonites need not be repeated. Gent 
figures one with the addition of a head in his history of Hull, and entitles it a ser- 
pentine stone found near Whitby, " only without the head ! " It is not uncommon 
to see these shells with artificial heads on north country chimney pieces.

•The'Brus coat was adopted by the Fauconberges, and, with the difference of 
the red bend, is that given above. On the mouldings of the noble east window of 
the priory church are some large shields, Faucouberge or Bru3 and Fauconbcrgo 
ancient on the south side, and Thwengc on the north. 

The monastic coat is given on a remarkable sculpture preserved, with other salvage 
of the priory, in the walls of " the Ruin" at Hardwick, near Sedgefield. 

The badge of a cock perched appears on this carving, which is probably one end of 
a tomb in commemoration of the founders, the sides of which arc in Guisbrough 
church, and also exhibit the same device. The principal inn at Guisbrough is known 
by the sign of The Cock, and stands close to the priory. 

In 1386, in the Scrope case, the Abbot of Gisburgh swore that his church was 
burnt 97 years before, and rebuilt. This agrees with the architecture of the choir, 
which is fine early Decorated. He also mentions the south aisle of the cross of his 
church. The exact dato of the fire is in the Chron. of Lanercost.

1 The quartering of Sutton was acquired before his time. In the Roll of Arms t.

lion rampand de or. Sir Roger de Bolmere, de argent, bilette de goules, a un lion 
rampand de goules." The family is stated to have been a younger branch of 
Bulmer of Brancepeth, represented by Nevil, but it possessed the manor of Bulmer 
itself.

4 See pedigree, adfinem, of Tempest of Studley. 

1 The impalement of bis personal coat has a difference of tincture, the main line 
of Tunstal bearing the field sable. He used cocks as his supporters or badges, as did 
others of his race. Leland says he was born at Hackforth, in Richmondshire. find 
was "base sunne to Tunstal, as I hard, by one of the Coniers' daughters." The 
badge of Conyers of Hornby was a slipped trefoil, and it perhaps deserves attention 
that on the castle of Durham the weather-moulding round his arms is decorated with 
single trefoil leaves on stalks, but not on the running stalk common to Perpendicular 
work, fie is omitted in the pedigree of Tunstal, in this Visitation, which is another 
strong support of the general truth of Leland's story. 

The coat given for the see is that called the arms of St. Cuthbert, in distinction to 
those of St. Oswald. 

2 In 1857, Mr. Daviesof York very satisfactorily showed that the establishment 
of this iron court preceded the Pilgrimage of Grace, which has generally been con- 
sidered to have been the reason of its foundation. His paper was read before the 
Yorkshire Philosophical Society, and proved that the court was connected with the 
residence'at Sheriff Hutton of the King's illegitimate son, the Duke of Richmond. In 
the archives of the Corporation of Yoik the Bishop of Durham is named as chief of 
the King's Council in these North parts on 12 July 1530, the year of Tonge's 
Visitation.

of Lucy Thweng, used the latter arms on his shield, and in 1365 the former, with a 
paroquet between two horns on a chapeau, as crest. The intricate questions arising 
out of the early history of the families of Eitz-Marmaduke, Thweng, and Lumley 
cannot be treated in this place, but it may be said with safety that the pedigrees 
contrived for John Lord Lumley, temp. Eliz., are disproved by his own documents 
and that the alleged descent from Liulph would be irreconcilable with chronology 
were there no more express objections to it.

8 Some notice of the other insignia of the famous house of Raby may he expected. 
The subject needs a volume, hut one or two items cannot he passed over. 

A stag rampa>it, " Rabye," occurs in Vincent, 172, under Lord Abergavenny. 
This must refer to the tenure of Rahy, by service of a stag to the Church of Durham. 

A dun bull. This seems not improbably to refer to the Bulmer fee of Brancepcth, 
though in Harl. MS. 2076, it is accompanied by the word "Rab" under Lord 
Abergavenny, from the origin of whose pied bull (marked "burg" and having two 
staples attached to the chain), it may possibly be distinct, although "the Pied Bull for 
Raby" is given to Lord Abergavenny in Harl, MS. 5854. The sex is not very cer- 
tain in No. 2076, and in A r incent, 172, under Abergavenny, it is plainly called "a 
dunne coive," for Nevill. The Dun Cow, however, is more appropriate to the Earls of 
Warwick; and for the Earl of "Westmoreland, in Harl. MS. 2076, where the bearing 
occurs as the "beast " of the family above the shield, it is plainly a bull, gorged with 
a ducal coronet. The ballad of the " Rising of the North Countrie " is precise. "Lord 
Westmoreland his ant vent raisde, the Dun Bull he rays'd on bye." Harl. MS. 
5854, also, has "the Dun Bull for Nevill." As the "beast," it occurs both on the 
roof of Brancepeth Church bearing a pennon, and in a sculpture at Raby bearing a 
banner, bo\h charged with the saltire of Fitz-Meldred. The ticket poesy of a Vicar 
of Soekburn, was " God save the Bui of West uteri 'and .'" There were breeds of wild 
cattle at both Raby and Brancepeth, and there is no express evidence of connection 
with Bulmer, but it seems very probable that, in the bull, the fee of Brancepeth 13 
alluded to. I have seen the Bull used on a signet of Bulmer of Wilton ; and it is 
generally accepted as the crest of the Bulmers. 

A muzzled bear. This occurs on the tomb at Brancepeth of a cross-legged warrior. 
So on the seal of Alexander de Nevil, figured by Surtees, muzzled bears form sup- 
porters to the shield. 

Greyhounds. I suspect that these may have reference to the Fitz-Randolphs, the old 
lords of Middleham. Whitaker speaks of an effigy at Coverham, their burial place, 
as accompanied by three dogs, two of them being engaged in the chase ; and when 
Ralph de Nevill founded, in 1342, a hospital at Well, one of the Fit:?;- Randolph 
estates, he gave it the capital messuage of Well, called ffond. Dogs struggle under 
the feet of more than one Nevil effigy ; they act as supporters on the seal of the Great 
Earl, and the skeleton of a greyhound was found at the feet of a Nevil's bones at 
Staindrop. Perhaps their last appearance is in the Standard of the Rebel Earl, 
wherein " Three Dogs, with golden collars, were sett out most royallye." 

The letters bb. " Ther is a tower in the castel [of Raby] having the mark of two 
capitale b's from Bertram Bulmer." (Leland ) They occur on seals, and bordered 
the glass in a window above the Nevil tombs in Durham Cathedral. Glass and 
tracery alike disappeared when the windows were reduced to the Norman style a 
few years ago. 

The interlaced annulets, which formed the badge of Bishop Nevil of Durham, and 
of Lord Fauconberg, his brother, had perhaps some Lancastrian savour. Their 
mother was a daughter of John of Gaunt ; and the eyelet-holes or annulets of his 
grandson, Henry V., and on the coins of Henry VI., are familiar to my readers. 

From evidence discovered at Brancepeth (see Sharp's Memorials, p. 239), the 
motto of the Earls of Westmoreland appears to have been " Moys Droyt, Moys 
Droyt." 

See Nichols's Armorial Windows of Woodhouse Chapel, for much curious inform- 
ation as to the Nevil differences.

1 " Priory of Durham, arms of, according to Reyner in his Apostolatus Benedic- 
tinorum, hu'Anglia. A chevron between three lions argent. Grey's MSS." There is 
here a strange confusion with Bishop Hatfield's arms, which were placed on the 
seals ad causas of Bishops Nevil, Booth, and Dudley. "At the exequies of the 
Lord Bishop Thomas Hatfield, the church of Durham received a great chalice of 
silver gilt, upon the foot of which is an image of our Lord on the cross, and upon its 
boss the shield of arms of the same Bishop, with three lioncels of silver." (Wills and 
Inv. 37-) " Et Sr. de Hatfcld p. de sable >in cheveron oVor et trois lionceux aV argent 
et itn molatt sable en point le cheveron." (Charles's Rolls, Harl. MS. 6589, among the 
chevrons, between Sir Tho. Dagworth and Sr. de Gumnoys.) 

The subject of the arms used by the Bishops and Priors of Durham require a 
separate essay. 

" The arms of St. Cuthbert and St Oswald," which were in the glass of Durham 
nave, appear by Tonge's entries of Durham and Nostel Priories to have been a cross 
between|four lions ; for the former saint a plain cross, for the latter a cross Jlory. 

It appears further that St. Cuthbert's arms were used both by Bishop Tunstal and 
the Prior. The first appearance of St. Oswald's shield is on the seal of Bishop Hat- 
field's Vicar General. The first appearance of St. Cuthbert's is on the seal of Prior 
Walworth, 1374-1391. 

A plain cross, also, appears on the Vicar General's seal of 1351, Bp. Ruthal gives 
it at Auckland, and it is used at Durham as the city arms.

2 The seal of Simon le Scrope, in 6 John, gives the device of a winged gryphon and 
in 1225, he seals with the same animal unwinged. In the ease of "Scrope v. Gros- 
venor," the sub-prior of Wartre exhibited a red amice with golden leopards and 
gryphons, between which were the entire arms of Scrope, viz. the famous bend. He 
stated that it was 160 years old. This, if true, would give the date 1226. The Prior 
of Lanercost said that the same arms, within a golden bordure, had been in his refec- 
tory and nave since the building of the church, temp. Hen. II. It was founded in 
1169 by Robert de Vallibus, wbo sealed with a gryphon. Sir Richard, the first 
Baron of Bolton, and his son Roger, both bequeath " pro aula ibidem aulam meam 
viridem cum griffons textam cum mantellis armorum meorum." 

It would be out of place to give the various proofs adduced in support of the bend, 
which some of the witnessess did not scruple to say had been used from the Conquest. 
The evidence is of differing value, but there seems to be little doubt that the undif- 
ferenced bend had been worn at a very early period. The Prior of Marton in Galtres, 
stated that two centuries ago (i.e. circa 1186), at the first foundation of his church (it 
was founded temp. Stephen, before 1154), Sir Robert Haket, lord of Quenby, so loved 
a Scrope, and Scrope so loved him, that they made mutual presents to the priory 
church of windows with each others arms, those of Scrope being a bend. The 
Scropes were reputed to be relatives of their superior lords, the Gaunts, who bore 
Barry* a bend. 

At the commencement of the 14th century we have two lawyers, brothers, found- 
ing the great houses of Bolton and Masham. Henry of Bolton appears sometimes 
to have borne the bend undifferenced, but his seal and other evidences give a small 
purple lion on the upper part of the bend, in consequence, according to the Abbot of 
Coverham, of a grant to a Scrope for life by the Earl of Lincoln. This baron was 
executor to the last earl. The lion also appears for his son William in the Roll of 
1337-50, but is not found in his seal of 1342, and was not again worn by the House 
of Bolton, but it strangely reappears, for an instant, in the House of Masham. Henry, 
the third Lord Scrope of that place, wishes his effigy to be armed " in armis mtis, 
cum Umbra Leonis in le Betide, prout riven* utor." That this was a conceit of his 
own appears from a distinction drawn by himself between his arms, and those of his 
father, " par pelvium — cum armis meis quibus utor de novo, cum xij discis qui fuerunt 
domini patris mei, cum armis sit is." 

A silver label was, however, almost uniformly the distinction of the House of 
Masham, and appears on the seal of Geoffrey, the brother of Henry and founder of 
the house, on 5 Mar. 2 Edw. III. The numerous minor distinctions for the younger 
sons of both lines form an interesting exemplification of ancient differencing. Both

of the doughters and heyres of the Lord Typtofte 3 : and by her 
he hadde Richard. 

were necessarily excluded from giving a silver label to heirs apparent, who had to 
colour it otherwise, generally red, or red and silver (gobonne). On these secondary 
matters, the reader must consult Nicholas's splendid print of the Scrope and Grosvenor 
Roll; but it may be noted that Archbishop Scrope graced the coat of Masham with a 
border of mitres. 

Dr. Raine has drawn attention to the " decima salmonum et scrap," the tithe of 
salmon and crabs, which the cell of Jar-row had, in connection with what must now 
be regarded as a pun, the use of crabs by the Scropes. The seals of Sir William of 
Bolton, and his brother, Sir Richard the first Baron (the plaintiff in the armorial case), 
present the crest of the great claws of a crab issuing from a coronet. Sir Richard's 
Bon, the Earl of Wiltshire (who died a traitor in his father's lifetime), abandoned this 
allusion, and henceforth it was exclusively used by the Scropes of Masham. It 
appears during Sir Richard's lifetime on the beautiful seal of Henry first Baron of 
Masham. The representation of this seal in Surtees gives an undifferenced bend on 
a pennon held by a lion's paw, but in a fine impression, dated 12 March, 11 Ric. II. , 
I find two bends on the pennon, and it is held by an armed hand, the knight's head 
being presumed to be in the helmet, and the mailed gorget of his neck being dis- 
tinctly visible. A whole crab also occurs as the badge of Scrope of Masham. In 
1415, Henry the third lord, forfeited, "veil ceel de soy, overez du brouderie des 
arm' d'Escrop, and de cradles," and in Canterbury Cathedral he appeared in his par- 
liamentary robes garnished about with golden crabs. The signetum de Crabb of John, 
who died in 1455, is figured in 2 Test. Ebor., 290, and crabbis were in the midst of 
his fair pile of twelve gilt cups and on their covers. 

The crest assumed by the Earl of Wiltshire was a plume of \blue~\ feathers issuing 
from a [golden'] coronet. It was ever afterwards borne by the descendants, at Bolton, 
of his brother Roger. 

The Earl, in 1 392, purchased the lordship of the Isle of Man from the Earl of Salis- 
bury ; but the latter, says Willement, " appears to have retained the [entire] arms 
and title of Lord of Man." In Willement's Roll, therefore, Wiltshire quarters Man 
and Scrope, placing a white label over the first coat, and a red one over his own. Ho 
died issueless and attainted, yet long afterwards John Lord Scrope strangely claimed 
" the beryng of th'armes of th'Erle of Man," which Thomas Lord Stanley was then 
wearing, and in 1475, at Edward lV.'s request, consented, without prejudice, to 
desist the use of them during the intended French expedition, so that no variance 
might ensue at so unfitting a season. 

In that expedition he gave a Cornish chough in his standard, and on his seal of 1465, 
he has two choughs as supporters. A chough also forms his secretum. In the time 
of Henry VIII., the standard of " the Lord Skroup " was Argent, divided into four 
compartments by three motto bends, eleven Cornish choughs, one large and four 
smaller in division A, one in B, two in C, and three in D. (Excerpta Hist., 62.) In 
my Roll of Peers, temp. Eliz., the supporters are sable, beaked and legged gules, and 
" these should stand on souch like thinges of armor for a man thye." They are repre- 
sented as gold, the scolloped border being red — " fringed at the end g. inMr. S. InKn: b. 
none of this armour." The Scropes of Masham very occasionally used a badge com- 
posed of a Cornish chough on a sprouting staff, the neck of the bird being garnished with 
a streamer charged with the differenced arms. (Harl. MS. 1366, and Rot. Pari, iv.) 

In the seal of 1465, there is some object in the sinister chough's beak, and above 
the dexter one is a fleur-de-lis. In Whitaker's cut of the Wensley tombstone to 
two children of Lord Henry Scrope, who died in 1525, the same royal ensign adorns 
the canopies in a very conspicuous manner. 

The motto of this great family on the standard temp. Henry VIII. was .... poir 
e vie atendant grace, but in my Roll it is Devant si ci puis. 

The origin of the name Le Scrope is not well made out. It appears by the prefix 
to be personal, but I should be sorry to adopt the most obvious derivation suggested 
by some of the early appearances of the name. The Saxon word, to which I allude 
is now represented in various dialects by " Scrub." 

5 Quarters II., III. The latter is the bearing of Badlesmere, of which family 
Lady Scrope' a grandmother was a coheir.

THYS YS THE PEDIGRE OF SYR WILLYAM HILTON, 
KNYGHT, CALLED THE BARON OF HILTON. 

ARMS. Quarterly. 

I. IV. — Argent, two bars azure. 
II. — Or, six annulets, 3, 2, 1, gules. 

III. — Argent, three swords, the points to the comers of the escutcheon, gules, 
proceeding from a torteaux in the nombril.- 

Syr Willyam Hilton, knyght, Baron 3 of Hilton, maried 

1 He is said to have been a citizen of London. The coat is given in the diction- 
aries for Gardner of Loudon, and, with the chevron differenced ermine, was granted 
in 1580 to Gardner of Berwick-upon-Tweed. 

2 The letter g is placed within a circle, therefore a torteaux appears to be indicated ; 
but I believo that in the Her. Coll. copy, a red annulet is given, and it is a more 
likely bearing in a Westmorland coat. Either torteaux or annulet is an unusual ad- 
dition to the usual appearance of this quartering. In Lansd. MS. 205. the object is 
like an annulet, but the centre is also coloured red ; and, unlike those of the text, 
the swords have not separate pomels, the central circle serving instead. 

3 Why the term Baron, should, par eminence, continue to be applied to the owners 
of Hilton and its members, in exclusion of their peers, is as difficult to explain as in 



DURHAM. 37 

Marie, doughter and quoheire of Stapulton of Westmerland, 4 and 
hey re to Vipont 6 : and by her he had yssue, Willy am, son and 

the parallel cases of the Barons of Greystoek and Stafford. Vast antiquity, if not 
priority of settlement, might have its influence. 

The first shield of arms for the family occurs on the seal of Alexander do Hilton, 
who went to Palestine in 1241. It is somewhat inaccurately engraved by Surtees, 
and by him ascribed to the Crusader's grandfather, a position negatived by the names 
of witnesses. The bearing is a gallant demi-lion passant. 

His son was the Sir Robert Hylton of the Roll, temp. Edw. I., who bore the well 
known coat " Argent ct ij barres azure." One cannot help noticing that the arms of 
Archbishop Grey, of whom Hilton held his lands in Yorkshire, and whose family had 
the custody of them during his youth, were Barry of six, argent and azure. 

The Waltons of Alston, a manor which the Biltons derived from Stapleton, gave 
the coat of Hilton surmounted by a red lion rampant. 

The singular crest of Moses' Scad on a wreath, is to be seen over the arms of Hilton 
on Lumley Castle, built in 1389, and again on Hilton Castle itself, at a rather later 
date. The cut in Surtees of this last example is exceedingly incon-ect. The horns 
in reality are rayed, and the mantle is covered with slipped trefoils. In these early 
instances the crest is in profile, but in the 16th century it had become full faced. 
There are two fine examples in Harl. MS. 2076. In both, the hair and beard are 
yellow. In the first, for "the Barone of Hiltonne," Sir Thomas, there are still two 
horns, each of three rays, and between them is a badge of golden rays descending 
from a nebulous line, which is marked pur. (in Vincent's MSS. _pro., for proper, which 
is more likely to be correct). In the second coat, that of " Sr. Willm. Hillton, Q..E.," 
the head of Moses terminates in a nebulous wreath, from which ascends a row of 
golden rays. The nebulous wreath is not always found, even'at that period. On the 
chapel of Hilton, it is given separately as an architectural ornament. The head with 
many rays occurs as a badge on the seals of the 15th century, and it continued to be 
the form of crest down to the last baron's time. 

The standard, in Harl. MS. 4632, temp. Hen. VIII., of "the Baron of Hylton," 
is nebulce, and three Moses' heads. It is very confusedly drawn, but apparently there 
are three cross lines of nebulee, between which the heads are placed. 

" The baron Hilton did beare « Row* buck argent, horns and clears or, for his sup- 
porters, and a Moyses head for the creast all gold so [to ?] the face." (Vincent's MS. 
172.) This roebuck occurs on Hilton Castle above the arms, as a badge. There it 
is couchant, ducally gorged, and chained. It occurs on the signet of John de Helton, 
clerk, in 1406. It is drawn as a supporter of Sir Thomas's Arms in Harl. MS. On 
the chapel, which is of late perpendicular work, there are two sets of supporters, Lions 
and roebucks — never used together. Latterly the lions only have been used. They 
are coloured blue, and presented a curious appearance on the carriage of Mr. Jolliffe, 
who married the eldest coheiress. He placed the supporters over his own coat, as 
well as the escutcheon of pretence which they accompanied. 

I do not remember to have seen the motto, Tant que je puis, at an earlier period 
than the 17th century. 

It is remarkable that the Hiltons of Burton, in Westmoreland (whose coat of 
ealtires and annulets betokens feudal connection with Vipont, and whose separate 
descent is almost as old as that of the Barons of Hilton, though they occur in the 
Baronial entails), should also give a full face as their crest in Burton Hall and Orm- 
side Church. But there are no rays, and the Burton rustics most strangely call the 
head that of Johnny Armstrong, the freebooter. On a slab of the 14th or 15th cen- 
tury, in the Burton porch of Warcop Church, there is a badge, four times repeated, 
apparently a sword hilt on an annulet. 

Near Lambton, the Hiltons held the estate of North Biddick, on which is the 
"Worm-Hill, famous in legendary lore. On the top of Hilton Castle are the remains 
of two large statuary groups, representing the struggle between a knight and a winged 
serpent.

2 John de Hetheworthe, in the 14th century, used a lend charged with three qua- 
trefoils, (Surtees, Seals, x., 4). Fig. 5 in the same plate gives a seal of 1334 belong- 
ing to his contemporary Waleran de Lumley, with a bind charged with three cinque- 
foils, over an inescutcheon. The seal of his brother Robert fitz Henry de Lumley 
gives an inescutcheon with an orle of martlets or paroquets, upon a conveyance to Win. 
de Kellawe and Alice, his wife. Their descendant Robert de Kellawc of Lumley 
sealed in 1383 with an inescutcheon in an orle of six escallops, and in 1392, Robert 
Darcy scaled with the same coat, substituting pierced cinquefoils for escallops. His 
sister and coheir, Catherine, married John Hedworth of Southwick, and their descend- 
ants wore her coat. " Note that this first coate is the amies of Darcy of the Bishop- 
rick, whose cohcire did mary Hedworth, so that Hedworth hath noe armes for his 
name." (Harl. MS. 1540.) For the late Lord Durham's time was reserved the 
absurdity of a quartering being assigned for Darcy in addition to that already assumed 
by Hedworth. Argent, three cinquefoils gules, was the coat assigned.

an older coat of the abbey itself. The undifferenced arms occur on both sides of the 
incised cross of a gravestone now or lately in an outbuilding of the abbey. 

From the constables of Richmond the Constable Cup which belonged to the Scropes 
is supposod to have come. If so, it had no connection with the tenure of the fee. 
As a mere personal chattel, Richard first Lord Scrope bequeathed to Roger, his heir, 
" unum ciphum de argento coopertum v catum le Constable Coppe." Roger, in like 
manner, bequeathed it to Richard, his heir, by the same description. But this 
Richard, the third lord, bequeathed to " cosyn Marmaduk Luniley a cuppe of sylver 
ys callid the Constable Bolle.'"

1 She married Sir Thomas Lawson of Dale, whose nephew, Sir Ralph Lawson, 
married the heiress of a still younger house of Burgh, which succeeded to the estate 
of Burgh on the failure of male issue of Giles The second coat of the shield is 
Richmond, the original name of the family, the name having been changed after a 
marriage with the heiress of Burgh. See Rhine's Catterick Church. The present 
Sir William Lawson has succeeded to a rich heritage of documentary evidence, and 
the old hall still retains an ancient armorial ceiling or two, of the period of the mar- 
riage between Lawson and Burgh. The coat of Lawson. quartering the arms of Cram- 
lington and Swinhoe, impales Burgh quartering Richmond. Single charges of these 
coats are given as badges or devices, viz. a Jteur-dc-lis for Richmond, a swan for 
Burgh, a martlet for Lawson, and a boar for Swinhoe. The crest is that of Lawson, 
viz. two arms holding a ring enclosing a sun. Sir William Lawson has an old grant 
of a martlet as a second crest. See 1 Arch. -ZEL, N. S., 65, for " Sigillurn Johannis 
filii Lwwrincii" used by John Lawson of Corbiigg in 1371, and displaying the usual

Syr John Coniers, of Horneby, maried Margery, doughter 

1 The homo propositus of the family was Roger de Coigners, who received their 
well known seats of Sockburne in Durham and Hoton (Conyers) in Yorkshire from 
Bp. Flambard. With his son Roger the maunch appears, and in the next generation 
we have the fine seal of Roger de Conyers, who gives semee of crosses patonce [per- 
haps a mere diapering], an arm hi a maunch. The circumstances are not very clear, 
but something occurred at that time resulting in the settlement of the Durham 
estates upon Geoffrey de Conyers, who seems sometimes to have sealed with a hand 
and a maunch (Visit. 1584, Darell of Sezay), and at others with a maunch and a 
crescent. 

The eldest line is duly traced at Hoton to a Robert, who commences the Visitation 
pedigrees of Mallory. This family appears to have uniformly used the arms given 
to Monsike r>E Coiners in the Roil 1337-50, " Port d' azure, a une manche d'ermin." 
Sir William Mallory, the grandson of their heiress, deposed in the Scrope and Gros- 
venor case as to the ancient chapel of Hoton Conyers. His mother was a coheiress 
of Nunwick, and her sister married Adam Coigniers, qui vocarit seipsum Norton, his 
mother having been an heiress of that name. Adam's grandfather, Egbert or Robert 
Coigniers, was doubtless nearly allied to the parent stem, and the arms worn by his 
descendants, the Nortons, were the same as those quartered by Mallory, with the 
addition of a red bend over all. 

The second, or Sockburne line, on the contrary, wore the maunch in gold instead 
of ermine. Being Barons of the Palatine Bishop of Durham, they used two foxes as 
supporters. The crest was a red dcmi-vol. It can hardly be doubted that the great 
house of Conyers of Hornby sprang in some way from the Sockburne branch. The 
arms were the same, with the addition of a black annulet, and the Harl. MS. 2075 
gives for the Lord Conyeks the crest as on a wreath or and azure, a red wing 
charged with a silver annulet. In Harl. MS., 4632, we have the standard, silver, a 
blue lion passant ; the whole standard semee of red crosses crosslet and pairs of wings 
addorsed, each 2)air connected with blue knots. The blue lion was that of Faucon- 
berge, derived from Brus, and in 20 Hen. VII., William Lord Conyers sealed with 
the, maunch of his fathers, enclosing the lion. The motto was Ung Hoi, Ung Dicu. 

The arms of Conyers of Hornby are precisely those of Sir Robert Conyers in 
Willement's Roll, temp. Ric. II. It appears, from the Scrope and Grosvenor Case, 
that he was born about 1325, and Sir H. Nicholas is doubtless right, in identifying 
him with the Robert whose marriage was bought of his uncle or grandfather, Sir 
Robert Conyers, knt., by Archbishop Melton, for his niece Joan. It is observable 
that while the Meltons gave for their badge a trefoil, charged ivth the letters a b C. 
Harl. MS. 4632), Conyers of Hornby also gave as a second crest or badge the 
same emblem, charged with the letter t. (Harl. MS. 1487.) This, without the 
letter, occurs, both in glass and stone, in Hornby Church; and in Tyllotson's Collec- 
tion of Badges, 3 Eliz. (Soc. Ant., Lond.) ia the entry, " L. Conyers, the three- 
leaved grasse."

There seems no good reason to doubt that this Robert was he who, in the Visita- 
tion of Durham in 1575 (Claxton of Wynyard), heads the pedigree as father of John 
Conyers, the husband of the heiress of St. Quintin of Hornby. He appears to have 
been married thrice ; 1, to the Archbishop's niece ; 2, to Juliana, heiress of Percy of 
Ormcsby ; and 3, to the Lady of Dalden. By the second lady, he had issue another 
Sir Robert Conyers, who was specially brought into the Dalden entail, after failure 
of the blood heirs, but is nowhere, I think, stated to be heir of his father ; and 
whose son John, in 1438 makes [his cousin] Christopher Conyers of Horneby an 
executor of his will. (2 Test. Ebor. 64.)

her brother Sir John, who sealed his will in 1418 with the arms of the second quar- 
ter of the shield in the text. His crest on the same seal is a bird holding the motto 
Droit desir. The limits of a note will not allow the inse.ition in this place of the 
reliable evidences touching the Colvilles, which have been preserved by the Maul- 
everers of Arncliffe, who descended from the other coheiress, and have been kindly 
placed at my discretion by Douglas Brown, Esq., of Arncliffe Hall. 

There seems to be a generation omitted in the text Between the first and second 
names, the Visit.- 1585 places another John, who married Eleanor Montfort. There 
is a brass in Kirklington Church to John Wandysford, Esq., who died 4 May, 14G3, 
and Alienora, his wife. 

The third quarter contains the coat of Musters, the heiress of which family ap- 
pears in the generation preceding the pedigree of the text. 

The crest of Wandisford, a cathedral church, may refer to Musters (de Monas- 
teriis), rather than to Kirklington.

These Viponts bear the coat of those represented by Clifford, but with the tinctures 
counterchanged. The Musgrave arms, like many Westmorland coats, are feudally 
derived from Vipont. They occur in the Rolls of 1337-50 and 1392-7. On the 
signet of Sir Simon Musgrave of Edenhall, in 1584, the usual crest, two arms in 
armour proper, grasping a golden annulet, encloses a stag lodged. In Harl. MS. 
2076, his colours are stated to be or and azure, and the above crest is given without 
the stag.

i Whixley, Visit. 1585. 

2 In 1584, the lord of Allerton Mauleverer was Sir Richard, the son of Gilbert 
Mauleverer, brother of Sir Richard of the text. The second quarter is Lutterell, 
the grandfather of Sir John having married an heiress of that name. The true con- 
nection between this family and that of Allerton Gleddow, Potter- Newton, Wooder- 
some, and Arncliffe has not occurred to me. The latter family, which acquired the 
heiress of Colvillc, wore the field sable, and collared the greyhounds of the Malua 
Leporarius with gold. They give the greyhound as a device in a variety of elegant 
ways, and had another beautiful badge, a maple-leaf; but I suspect that it is a Col- 
ville one and not paternal. William Mauleverer, who signed their true pedigree in 
1584, was the genealogist of the family ; but it would have been extraordinary 
indeed had he escaped the temptations of his age. His waverings have their interest. 
In 1581, at the age of 24, he prefixes some verses to the well known fiction, which 
generally passes as the pedigree of Mauleverer. In 1584, he signs the true pedigree 
in the Visit, of Yorkshire. The said fictitious pedigree is in fact brought down to 
1587, and in 1591, it is emblazoned on vellum, certified "par me, Lancaster Harold 
at Arms," and sealed with that unscrupulous herald's coat. In 1601, at the age 
of 45, Mauleverer reverts to the truth, and elaborates with proofs in extenso for 
every generation " my pettiegree collected and contrived out of myne auncient and 
newe evidences." It had been well had the Elizabethan hei-alds' contrivances been 
triumphantly refuted by every family in the same way. From the entry of 1584, 
it would seem that Mauleverer rather amused himself with the tempter's suggestions, 
than adopted them against the evidence of his own cartulary. My best thanks 
are tendered to Douglas Brown, Esq , for his courteous communication of the Arn- 
cliffe muniments. 

In Harl. MS. 2076, Sir Edward Malyverye, Q.M. [Queen Mary's time], who was 
father of William the Genealogist, has a red field assigned to him and the collars 
are red also. His colours are given as argent and azure, and above the shield, 
without a wreath, there is placed a greyhound statant, with a red collar, from ivltich 
proceed tiro links studded with gold. 

The standard of Sir John Maleverer, (I presume the John of the text), in 1475, 
was a " ichytt Grahound curant." (Uet. Rev., N. S., ii., 517.) In the Roll of 
1392-7, two Mauleverers are given, Monsr. Olyver and Monsr. William. £othha,YQ 
the field gules, and the hounds of the latter are not collared.

2 I hardly know how to describe these charges. They resemble the asks or dra- 
gons seen on the Bayeux Tapestry and on early effigies, but lack wings and legs. 
Speaking plainly, they arc dragons' heads with short serpentine tails. Judging from 
some early examples, I am inclined to think that the griphons' heads of the Peniber- 
tons of Durham (who were not indigenous), were originally dragons' heads.

1 There is wonderful persistency in the traditions at Newark and Sessay that he 
was found at one or other of those places on St. Thomas's day, and called Thomas 
Amang Us. In his foundation of the Free School at Newark, he mentions John 
Magnus his father, and Alice his wife, settlor's mother, and Joan, Elizabeth, and 
Katheiine his sisters ; and in his will he says that he was baptized at Newark. Sessay 
church windows (1 speak of the old church — its glass is not mentioned in Gill's ac- 
count of the new one — ) contained his rebus, an Agnus Dei with M thereupon. Above 
"Was the motto in the text, and the herbage was full of columbines. The same flower 
and the Agnus Dei alternately occur on the corners of his gravestone at the same 
church. " The Columbine, in tawny often taken, Is then ascribed to such as are 
forsaken." (Browne's Britannia's Pastorals, 1613.) He is found avoiding Cardinal 
Wolsey when, " as God will," he falls, and in allusion to his name, device, and cha- 
racter, an old line may very appropriately be applied to him ; — " Doctor quam rnag- 
nus .' gravis his, his mitis nt agnus." See Thornton's Notts, sub Newark, and Wood's 
Fasti Oxon, under 1520.

1 This is the coat imperfectly given in Constable's Roll, Appendix, p. si. It is 
evident that the artist had not finished his work oa this needlessly elaborate series of 
quarterings. The quarterings in the text are said, in my copy of Visit. 1584, to be 
Aclam and Morby quartering Cawood and Sailby. 

2 This addition, which is clearly necessary, is derived from a duplicate pedigree of 
Aclam, which has been inserted in the next folio in error for that of Palmes, and 
struck out.

1 The precise coat is given by Glover, in his Ordinary of Arms, to Andrewes of 
Lancashire, and Launcelyn, and, with a red piercing of the mullets, to Grimston of 
Yorkshire. I think the latter family more likely to be intended, but in the entries of 
it in tho latter Visitations the mullets are gold, pierced with red.

1 This priory was Gilbertine, like that of Malton ; and, like it, was founded by 
Eustace Fitz John. I can only conjecture, from the similarity of arms to those of 
Malton Priory, that the above coat belongs to Watton. It will be observed, that 
originally the coat was drawn precisely like that of Malton, with a prior's staff in 
bend sinister, which was erased.

1 Thomas Reresby of Thribergh, Yorkshire, esq., married Cicely, sister and coheir 
of John Gotham of Brinsforth, Yorkshire. His son, a deponent in Scrope v. Gros- 
venor, was born about 1326. Nicholas gives his arms as Gules, on a bend argent 
three crosses flory or palee sable, quoting Heralds' Visitations, and a Roll of Arms t. 
Edw. III., but remarks that in the roll of 1392-7 a Sir Thomas Reresby is said to 
have borne three mullets pierced of the field instead of the crosses. There is a pedi- 
gree of the family in 2 Hunter's S. Yks., 39. In the east window of Thribergh 
church are the'arms impaling Gotham, viz., the third quartering in the text. In the 
same church, Normanville, the earliest recorded match of the family, appears in two 
forms : — 1. Argent, on a fess between two bars gemelles gules three fleurs-de-lis or, 
and 2. Two bars gemelles, on a canton three fusils in fess. The crest was a goat 
passant argent, and the motto is said to have been " Mercy, Jesu!" 

2 1 suppose that the description in the text is meant, but as drawn the quartering 
is Argent, two bars gemels gules, and a cbief of the field, thereon a bar of the second, 
with a canton, &c. 

3 William de Wentworth, living 2 Edw. II., married Isabella, daughter and co- 
heiress of Wm. de Pollington {Quarter III.), and their son William maried Isabella, 
daughter and coheiress of Walter de Tinsley. The crest was a gryphon argent ; and 
Thomas Wentworth, who married Margaret, the heiress of Gascoigne, and died in 
1587, bequeaths to his heir, his chain of gold and gold ring, whereon is engraven his 
crest, badge, and cognizance, and a dozen of silver spoons, with gryphons' heads at 
the ends. From this line proceeded the Earl of Strafford. The crest is given as a 
gryphon arffi nt.

1 The early round seals both of Nostell and Bardirjy, c mirnencing : — " Sigillum 
Sancti Oswaldi," remind one of the formula of the conventual seal of Durham. They 
present the king sitting on one of the antique thrones like camp stools, shown in the 
more ancient regal seals of Scotland, and holding a cross in one hand and a flower or 
leafy sceptre in the other. 

On the principal south stall of Darlington church St. Oswald appears to carry two 
sceptres. He ruled over both Bernicia and Deira. A paly coat is sometimes ascribed 
to Bernicia, the cross and lions being then given to Deira. " Neither know I whether 
I may refer hither out of Beda, how Edwin, King of Northumberland, had always 
one ensign carried before him, called in English a Tuffe, which Vegetius reckoneth 
among military ensigns, or how King Oswald had a banneroll of gold and purple, in- 
terwoven paly or bendy, set over his tomb at Bardney Abbey in Lincolnshire." 
(Camden's Remains, Armories.) But among the curious seals of Bardney the cross 
and lions appear under St. Oswald in the time of Edward III. The lions are facing 
each other in Coney's plate, and the cross, though worn, seems to be patee. 

The identity of one of the coats borne by the prelates of Durham with that of St. 
Oswald, has elsewhere been mentioned (p. 31), and it would appear that each foun- 
dation using it gave some honest difference. Thus Durham gave the same tinctures as 
in the arms ascribed to St. Cuthbert, the field azure, the cross gold, and the lions 
silver. See also under Fountains. 

In the windows of an apartment in the priory were the arms of " Com. Lincoln," 
three garbs ; " Ducis Lancast." England with a silver [?] label charged with fleurs- 
de-lis of gold ; and " S. Oswald," a cross between four lions rampant in gold. (Doda- 
worth, per Hunter.)

vert. 
Impalement. Argent, five fusils in fess gules, in chief three martlets sable. 



i Quarter IX. 

2 Impalement. The quartering is Fitzwilliaru. The only son of this marriage was 
considered "simple," " idiota," but perhaps more because he was ruled by the Tal- 
bots than for any other reason. Johnston had heard that when he was examined he 
was asked how many legs a sheep had, to which he answered, " Two." This ap- 
peared conclusive against him ; but he surprised the court by telling them, " Since 
he could remember, there were two legs and two shoulders, and if they had asked 
him how many feet, he had told them, four." (2 Hunter's S. Yks., 302.) 

This is the main line of Savile. The heiresses acquired before the commencement 
of the pedigree were those of Eland and Thornhill. (Quartt rs V. VII J The Eland 
martlets were 4. 3. 1. on an effigy of an Eland in Tankersley church. Eland had 
married Tankersley. (Quarter VI )

* Chevet was derived by this Sir John Nevil (who was third son of Sir John Nevil 
of Liversedge), by marriage with Elizabeth Bosvil, a coheiress, whose arms form the 
impalement. 

In Dugdale's Visitation the crest of Nevil of Chevet is given, a bull's head erased 
sable. 

" There is a knight of the North country, 
Which leads a lusty clump of spears ; 
I know not what his name should be, 

A boisterous bull all black he bears," 
Lord Hume then answered, loud on hight, 

"This same is Sir John Neville bold; 
King Harry hath not so hardy a knight, 
In all his camp, my coat I will hold. 
He doth maintain, without all doubt, 
The Earl of Westmoreland's estate, 
I know of old his stomach stout ; 

In England is not left his mate." — Battle of Floddon.

5 Gules, a cross fleuree or, on a chief azure three round buckles of the second. First 
quartering of Bimny in Visit. 1615. In 1584 the pedigree of Pecke of Wakefield 
begins a generation higher than in Tonge (see p. 81), with a marriage with a daughter 
and heiress of Heselden. There is a quartering of Gules, a cross fleuree or, on a chief 
of the last three sable objects, which in my copy look more like hazle-nuts than buckles. 
This is better heraldry than the quartering of Bunny. 

6 The pedigree is continued in 1584 to Francis, who commences Dugdale's. See a 
younger line in Visit. Dur., 1615.

useful Memoirs of Sir Walter Blaekett, published in 1819. One of the Calverleys, 
it will be remembered, was the unfortunate perpetrator of " the York>hire Tragedy." 
Sir W. Calverley Trevelyan, Hart., of Wallington, has a vast heritage of Yorkshire 
evidences, and a much elaborated pedigree, by Bigland or Heard, if I remember rightly.

[ THE MONASTERY OF SALLEY. ] 

ARMS. Azure, five fusils in fess or. 1 

Be yt notid, that Willyam lord Percy, the iij da of that 
name after the Conquest, founded the Monastery of Salley, of 
White Monkes, in Cravyn ; and so restyth founder of the said 
Monastery the ryght honorable Lord Henry Erie of Northum- 
berland. 2 

1 These are the arms ascribed to the older Percys, and certainly worn by the imme- 
diate successors of Josceline de Louvaine. The crescents of Percy occur in the abbey, 
but in sculpture of a comparatively late date. 

"The Old Heraldry of the Percys" was somewhat elaborated by me in 4 Archae- 
ologia -ZEliana, 157, and it may be convenient to place upon record here a few ad- 
ditions to the article alluded to. 

p. 161. In Agnes Percy's epitaph, vita should probably be read una. (D P.) 

p. 166. Remove the query from the five fusils as the arms of Henry de Percy 
(1243-1272). " Henry de Percy, d'azur, a la fesse eugrele d'or." (Glover's Roll.) 

To the note in same page, add; — " Piers Percy, d'or, ung fece engrale d'azur.'' 
(Ibid.) 

p. 171. To the evidences of a lion rampant for Henry de Percy (1315-1353), 
add: — " Moxsire de Percye, port d'or, a une lyon rampant d'asure." (Roll, 1337- 
50.) Monsire Willtam de Percy, les armes de Sire de Percy, son frere, a une 
border recersele gules. (Ibid.) 

p. 173. Blomefield gives Thomas Percy's bordure as engrailed. 

p. 179. The seal of 1386, in which the first Earl of Northumberland appears with 
bands of crescents on his armour, was used in 1379 (Madox's Form. Aug., 65), before 
his marriage with Maude Lucy. In the same page, for 1375, read 1395. 

p. 181. On referring to Sir Winston Churchill's own book, I find that the "tripar- 
tine exchange" was in fact the league between Hotspur, Worcester, and Glendower. 
Worthless as the story is, it is observable, as it shows that the crescent M'as not 
always thought to have been much more anciently used by the Percys.

(Ingledew's Northallerton, 246.) 

p. 185. For Bondgate Street, read Narrowgate. 

p. 195. The seal of the fourth Earl gives Percy and Lucy quarterly, with the 
usual crest, and two lions as supporters. The counter-seal has a seated lion affrontee, 
with " Esperance." It is in the possession of the Rev. Wm. Greenwell, Durham, 
and is accompanied by a fine autograph. 

p. 205. As to the badge of the locket or turrets. — I may add that the word turret 
is applied to the crest worn by horses in which a pendant swings, and also to the 
circles through which the reins pass. Thus De Quincy, in his paper on " The Engli-h 
Mail Coach," speaks of "the silvery turrets of his harness," and says that the word 
torrettes is used by Chaucer to designate "the little devices through which the reins 
are made to pass. The same word, in the same exact sense, I heard uniformly used 
by many scores of illustrious coachmen, to whose confidential friendship I had the 
honour of being admitted in my younger days." (Selections, Grave and Gay, iv., 
308.) 

p 218. As to the Knaresborough Monument. — Mary (Percy) Slingsby's feet rest 
against the Percy crescent only ; each foot against its respective horn of the crescent. 
The points of the horns are broken off, and there seems at one time to have rested 
upon the crescent an additional cognizance, doubtless the locket or turrets. Her 
husband's feet rest on a lion, the crest of the Slingsbys. (Inf. D.P.)

1 This pedigree is entered at fo. 145, and is not, as I conceive, any part of Tonge's 
Visitation. But as it is of the same period, and of more local interest than the 
other collectanea in the MS., I have preserved it. And as the early portion is not 
quite correct, I subjoin the evidence in the foundation of Holmside Chapel in 1540, 
with just sufficient of other evidence to render matters clear.

[ NORTHUMBERLAND. ] 

Hexrie Wethrington of Wethrixgtox, kxight. — Quarterly, argent 
and gules, a bend sable. 

Sr. Cuthberte Collixwood, miles (Islixgtox added). — Argent, a 
chevron between tbree stags' heads erased sable, each having in the 
mouth a leaf? [of tbe field or untinctured.] 

Heron. (Sr Heron of Chipchase, added.) — Gules, three herons argent. 

Fexick 1 of "Wellington, armiger. — Argent, three martlets gules, on 
a chief of the last three martlets of the field. 

Swynborne of Cattheton, 2 aemiger. — Per fess gules and argent, 
three pierced cinquefoils counterchanged. 

Clovell, gentl. — Gules, a chief argent. 

Cramlington, gentl. — Azure, two bars and a chief argent, on the 
last three annulets sable. 

Strtjdder, gentl. 3 (de Fowberrt, added.) — Gules, on a bend en- 
grailed argent, three eagles displayed vert. 

1 Thomas de Fenwyke, knt, seals in 1274, with the six martlets and a label of 
three points. In this early instance no division line of the field is shown. The MS. 
of the text agrees with the earliest blazon of the arms. " Monsire de Fenwike 
port d' argent, chief gules, a vj marietta de Vune et V autre." (Roll 1337-50.) It is 
obvious that if the birds are properly placed as three, two, and one, on the shield, 
and the two martlets are of the same colour as the single one, the dividing the three 
from them must form a chief. In the Fenwick coat, the two martlets are never 
counterchanged by a fess line passing through them. But the coat, since the earlier 
instances, has been almost universally drawn and described as per fess, necessitating 
a dislodging of the martlets from their ancient positions. This has been effected in 
more ways than one. Sometimes the birds (especially in quarterings) are three and 
three. Once I saw them as two and one in chief, and two and one in base. At 
other times the arrangement of three, two, and one is preserved, but the whole are 
sunk and the distance between the three and the two is exaggerated. 

2 Of Capheaton. The early Swinburnes of Swinburne bore punning arms, boars' 
heads. " Adam de Swynebcjrne. De goules, a trois testes de senglier d'argint," 
(Roll 1240-5.) This coat, with the addition of a powdering of crosses crosslet, was 
continued by the Swinburnes of Essex, and Lords of Gunnerton and Knaresdale. In 
1316 we have the seal of Adam de Swinburne giving Argent, on a cross gules five garbs 
or, while round the shield the three paternal boars' heads are disposed as badges. I 
give the blazon from the dictionaries. Among the Chollerton deeds at Capheaton is 
the seal of Sir Hugh de Swynburne, chaplain. He gives three garbs impaling a fess 
between three pierced cinquefoils. These cinquefoils, which characterized the Cap- 
heaton branch, at least as early as 1352, have, with great probability, been supposed 
to arise from the grant, in 1268, of Chollerton to the head of that branch, by Um- 
froville, Earl of Angus, of whose family the cinquefoil was the well-known bearing. 
The cinquefoil was used a badge on the signet of Sir William de Swyneborne in 
1395, and continues down. Thomas Swyneborne of Edlyngham seals with it in 2 
Elizabeth. There is a very interesting seal of Sir William Swinburne in 1442. He 
gives the arms of the text, with a c\em\-sivine rising out of a coronet for the crest; 
and to complete the pun, there flows a sort of scroll from the helmet in lieu of mant- 
ling, which, on close inspection, we find to be one of the little streams called burns, 
well furnished with four rows of fish, three in each row. 

3 Monsr. Tho. de Strothere, Gules, on a bend argent, three eagles displayed vert, 
armed gules. (Roll 1392-7) In 1374, Joan, widow of the famous John de Copeland

sealed with the plain cross of her husband, impaling the same coat of Strother, and 
in 1375, Henry del Strother gives it also. In 1376, Alan de Strothre of Lyam, 
engrailed the bend, and in 1423, John de Strother invected it and gave a demi-eagle, 
with raised wings, as a crest. (See 1 Archa?ologia JEliana, 25, and 1 Hodgson's 
Northumberland, Pt. ii., 267). 

1 The seal of John de Cartington, in 1452, gives with these arms a crest, viz., a 
horse's head. 

2 Glover's Ordinary gives for Cresswell de Northumberland the coat since worn 
by the family: — Gules, three plates, each charged ivitli a squirrel sejant of the field. 
For Cresswell of Yorkshire the plates are varied into bezants. For the name only, 
we have the coat of the text, but with rami heads, and in other places with the bend 
uncharged. The coheir of the family, who now bears the name, wears Erminois, three 
tortcaux, each charged with a squirrel sejant argent. Was the tincture changed when 
the name was assumed? and if so, why? Surely the laud would justify the wear- 
ing of the unditferenced coat. It occurs in Visit. North. (Harl. MS. 1554), as Glover 
gives it, and for the younger line of Holderness, in Visit. Yorks. 1584, with the 
tinctures counterchanged and a crescent besides.

1 Both inside and out of the west end of Seaton Delaval Chapel is a row of old 
quatrefoiled panels, the foils being ogeed, and each panel containing a shield. The 
shields are repetitions of only two coats. 1. Delaval as in the text, with a mullet on 
the upper bar. 2. Gules, a lion rampant ermine crowned, and encircled with a bar 
(azure or sable) on which a mullet is placed. The colours are much faded. 

The family, apparently a junior branch, fell into female issue, and the later lords 
of Seaton Delaval, in 1575, commence their paternal pedigree with a Jacobus Delavale 
alias dictus Jacobus Horsley, and the arms entered are: — 1. Delaval, without differ- 
ence. 2. Horsley, Gules, three horses' heads eouped argent bridled. 3. Gules, three 
eagles displayed or. 4. Gules, a lion rampant ermine, widifferenced, crowned or. In 
the chancel of the chapel there is an old banner, with the following quarters : — 
1, Delaval ; 2, the eagles ; 3, Barry of six, or and vert, three annulets gules ; 4, the 
crowned Hon with a mallet gules on the shoulder. There is much modern heraldry in 
the nave. 

2 Afterwards Bishop Cosin. He wore a fret when he wore the mitre, hut the tinc- 
tures Argent, a fret azure, given by the Durham historians, are doubtless inaccurate. 
In the blue and white windows of Auckland Chapel the fret is white. Azure, a fret 
or, is quoted from Ashmole MS. 8585, by Bedford, to whom Sir Frederick Madden 
communicated a seal exactly corresponding with the coat in the text.

THE SURTEES SOCIETY. 



REPORT FOR THE YEAR MDCCCLXI. 

(Read at the General Meeting on the 17th of June.) 

[SECOND EDITION ; with the Lists of Members and Publications 
corrected up to June, 1862.] 

The Surtees Society has very good reason to congratulate 
itself upon the position which it at present occupies. It has 
now been in existence for twenty-seven years; but it has 
gathered strength and influence with age. From modest be- 
ginnings it has gradually increased in numbers and efficiency, 
until it has secured for itself a footing in the Northern Counties 
which guarantees a long continuance of its usefulness and 
success. 

Since the publication of the last Report, the Surtees 
Society has lost twenty names from its list, fifteen of which, 
including the Patron and two Vice-Presidents, have been re- 
moved by death. This unusual falling off has been more than 
supplied by the election of no less than sixty-nine new asso- 
ciates. During this period, therefore, the Society has increased 
almost a fourth. A progress such as this is everything that 
can be desired. For the future the Society will be able to 
take in hand far more than it has hitherto attempted. Larger 
and more expensive works will be issued to the members, and 
a greater number of copies of each volume must also be struck 
off. 

It has been frequently observed that historical and anti- 
quarian pursuits and labours have always been most popular 
in the North. Through the publication of works of this de- 
scription a flood of light has been thrown upon that district. 
In Scotland there is no manuscript of any note that has not 
been given to the world by one or other of the great publishing- 
societies in that country. Our sister association, the Chetham 
Society, is doing its work well for Lancashire and Cheshire. 
There is little now remaining for the Surtees Society to do in 
Northumberland and Durham. Henceforward its energies 
must necessarily be devoted more especially to Yorkshire. 

The Surtees Society has already brought out several 



volumes of the greatest interest and value to the Yorkshire 
antiquary, but any one who examines the list of proposed pub- 
lications cannot fail to see that there is a noble residue still to 
be taken in hand. With that list the Surtees Society proposes 
gradually to deal. By far the most popular of its volumes 
have been those which relate to the County of York, and from 
the rapidly increasing number of Yorkshiremen who are ally- 
ing themselves to the Surtees Society, the Council is glad to 
think that its past and intended labours for Yorkshire are pro- 
perly appreciated. 

For the present year two volumes will be issued by the 
Society. The first is the second portion of the famous Lindis- 
farne Gospels, which one of our greatest scholars describes as 
the " noblest unpublished manuscript in Europe." This 
volume is being prepared for the Society by Mr. Waring of 
Oxford. The second is a Selection from the Depositions pre- 
served in the Castle of York, which were taken before the 
Magistrates of four of the Northern Counties. They throw 
a great deal of light upon the history and manners of the 
seventeenth century, and give us a picture of those times 
which has never been drawn before. 

For the year 1862 two most interesting works are in 
course of preparation. The first is the earliest Heraldic Visi- 
tation of the Northern Counties, which was made in 1533, by 
Thomas Tonge. To it will be appended several early rolls of 
arms and other genealogical information. The second volume 
is a work almost of national interest — the first part of the 
History of Fountains Abbey. It is impossible to exaggerate 
the importance of such an undertaking. The beautiful ruins 
of this once famous Monastery are well known to all, but 
every one will soon have an opportunity of becoming ac- 
quainted with its origin and grandeur ; how it was founded by 
the special direction of St. Bernard himself, and became one of 
the noblest of the Cistercian houses in Europe. A Monastery 
that had such cells as Newminster, Kirkstall, and the House of 
Light in Norway, must have been a magnificent one. The 
field on which the Society has to work is very rich and large. 
There are chronicles, account-rolls, and charters by thousands. 
One of the ancient " President" Books of the Abbey is in ex- 
istence, and contains the pedigrees of many of the families in 
Craven for the first two centuries after the Conquest, over- 
throwing the conclusions of Dr. Whitaker and every other 
Yorkshire antiquary, and giving to those houses an origin of 
which no one has been aware. The pedigree of the Percys is 
different from that which has been hitherto received, and in 



more than one instance the genealogy is carried into Saxon 
times. The materials out of which the volume •will be com- 
posed are, indeed, large, but every assistance has been given to 
the Society in the most gratifying manner. The present noble 
owner of the Abbey, Earl de Grey and Ripon, with hereditary 
munificence, has thrown open to the Society his muniment 
room at Studley, and has taken the greatest interest in the 
work. Mr. Ingilby, of Ripley, the representative of one of 
the oldest of the great Yorkshire families, has generously placed 
in the hands of the Editor of the volume, the charter-books and 
the manuscripts of the Monastery which came into the hands of 
his ancestors in the early part of the seventeenth century. Sir 
Thomas Phillipps has kindly put at the service of the Society 
the Chartularies in his magnificent collection ; and to the 
Masters and Fellows of University and Corpus-Christi Colleges, 
Oxford, and Trinity College, Cambridge, the Council is under 
great obligations for the loan of the valuable MSS. in their 
possession which relate to Fountains Abbey. With such mate- 
rials and support the work cannot fail to add to the reputation 
of the Surtees Society, and to confer a novel interest upon a 
monastery which is grand even in its ruins. 



THE SURTEES SOCIETY, 

ESTABLISHED IN THE YEAR 1834, 

In honour of the late Robert Surtees, of Mainsforth, Esquire, 
the Author of the History of the County Palatine of Durham, 
and in accordance with his pursuits and plans ; having for its 
object the publication of inedited Manuscripts, illustrative of 
the intellectual, the moral, the religious, and the social con- 
dition of those parts of England and Scotland, included on the 
east between the Humber and the Frith of Forth, and on the 
west between the Mersey and the Clyde, a region which con- 
stituted the ancient Kingdom of Northumberland. 

NEW RULES AGREED UPON IN 1849.

ing, held on the 7th February last, to revise the Rules of the

characteristic decoration connecting the Society with his name,
